Faith and Fire
by Priscilla Shirer
Every serious believer longs to summon up the kind of boldness and faith that can stand firm on Mount Carmel and pray down heaven into impossible situations. Yet few are willing to go through the process required to get them there. Strength of faith, character, and boldness can only be shaped in the hidden fires of silence, sameness, solitude, and adversity. Those who patiently wait on God in the darkness emerge with their holy loyalty cemented, their courage emblazoned, and their confident belief in Him set afire.
Join Priscilla Shirer on this 7-part journey through the life and times of the prophet Elijah to discover how the fire on Mount Carmel was forged in the valley of famine. And how the emboldened, fiery faith you desire is being fashioned by God in your life right now.
On alternate weeks we will be viewing Melissa Spoelstra’s complementary study on Elijah- Spiritual Stamina in Every Season. At times, life can feel like a roller coaster. One day everything is good, and the next it can feel like everything is falling apart. How can we walk with God through the many peaks and valleys of life?
In this study of 1 and 2 Kings, explore the story of Elijah—an ordinary man who did extraordinary things for God. Learn how God can use the highs and lows of life for His glory, and discover the spiritual stamina He provides to see you through every step.

THURSDAY STUDY- STARTS JANUARY 28
Often named the fifth gospel, the book of the prophet Isaiah has more to say about Israel’s coming Messiah than any other Old Testament book. Brilliant, courageous, uncompromising, this prophet declared that the year of the LORD had come and God’s people needed to either step up, or stand down. Indeed, when Isaiah spoke, kings trembled.
But too often, when Isaiah speaks today, God’s people have trouble hearing. Why? We often miss the larger context. In The Epic of Eden: Isaiah, Dr. Sandra Richter takes participants back to the eighth century BCE. This ten-week study explains Israel’s religion and economy, explores the definition and role of the prophets, and helps us to apply the message of this great champion of the faith to our lives today.
Starts JANUARY 28TH – Ends April 22
